Taco Tuesdays @ Abnormal Taphouse and Cantina!

Every Tuesday from 5:00 to 10:00 at Abnormal Taphouse and Cantina, we’ll be offering the people of Busan the best taco deals in town in our effort to bring the American tradition of Taco Tuesday to Haeundae.

For only 2000 won, you’ll get yourself a seasoned pork hard shell taco topped with our homemade pico de gallo, salsa, sour cream, and shredded sharp cheddar. How many can you get? Well, that’s up to you and your belly.

Now there is a catch… If you want to stuff yourself with these tacos, you need to order a beer. The good news is we have 13 phenomenal craft beers on tap, including ones from our house brewery, Abnormal Beer Company, out of San Diego, California!

Alright, folks, our new weekly trivia night is continuing to build, and we are always looking for new brainiacs to raise their swords. If you weren’t able to make it in the past, let me remind you that the pub quiz is now at HQ Gwangan every Wednesday, and there’s a new format:

1000 Won Entrance Fee Per Player / Winning Team Gets The Cash!

Maximum Team Size is 5. Minimum Team Size is 1.

2 Rounds of Questions
3 Categories in Each Round
5 Questions in Each Category

Plus in between rounds, we will have a Beer Bonus round where one team can win a free pitcher of Cass or OB.

We’ll be starting the quiz at approximately 9:00, and it’ll be done before 11:00 so for those of you coming from outside of Gwangan, you can hightail it to your bus or subway to stiff over the taxi drivers–or if you want to keep drinking, nobody’s stopping you.

Following, trivia, come on down for the newest open mic in town starting around 11 p.m.
